    Can't ask for much more than a day one sell out. Way to go!

    Yep, sold out direct and on a couple of retailer sites now!

Apparently I’ve never seen Chong’s black-and-white drawing work in other books, or at least never recognized it as his art. The similarity to Chadbourne’s work is, to my eyes, striking…but I shouldn’t have been lazy and simply assumed it was Glenn’s.
    No worries. I was assuming I had missed something.

    I remain confused as the Lividian websites states:

    For the Limited:
    Deluxe Production Features:
    • Ten black and white interior illustrations by Vincent Chong
    • Full-color dust jacket artwork by Vincent Chong

    For the Trade Hardcover:
    Production Features:
    • Full-color dust jacket artwork by Vincent Chong (different from the Limited Edition)
    • Ten black and white interior illustrations by Vincent Chong

    The Paperback Bundle has no mention of interior art but states 'These editions feature brand new cover artwork by Vincent Chong created exclusively for these editions'

    I am finding no mention of Chadborne. Where are you seeing him?

    Not true. The interior B&W illustrations are by Vincent Chong, too---as they have been for all of the previous books.

    I'm letter 'Q' with Lividian so if one of you guys needs to match with Cardinal Black, let me know.

    Correct. All of the art for the entire series has been done by Vincent Chong.

Thank goodness it was being touted by other emails as for some odd and frustrating reason emails from Lividian always get dumped in my Junk folder…had other retailers and Hunter not sent out emails I would’ve been unaware of it and missed my ordering opportunity. Not a fan of Chadbourne’s art, but I certainly wouldn’t want to miss out on this new McCammon. Now I just need to get back to reading the series, as I’m only three or four books in thus far.

    I understand this however, provided everything I've seen from LP, I think they would have a different take on the limited and it would suit my taste(s).

    I bought it, but I'm glad that the idea of getting a "Matching-set" of this series has never entered my mind. What a weird twisty publishing trip it has been LOL!! And the very first book is still just sitting there like a big ole signed trade edition, that people try to sell for way too much money. But I really enjoy the books and that's what matters.

    Too funny as this is almost what I was thinking word for word when I placed my order this morning. Glad to have these books as I am a huge Mccammon fan, but, it does make the shelf/series look a bit weird as there are at least 5 publishers for the limited editions of this series that I am aware of (River City, SubPress, CD, SST, & now Lividian).

    I think it's a pretty complicated situation. But I do know that I'd love to circle back and publish a beautiful new Limited Edition of that one when the series is done, to kind of match what SP, CD, and now LP have been doing. (Assuming Rick would be interested and the rights could be sorted out!)

    Brian
    So maybe a 25th anniversary edition!
